ETRO extension decisionOn target
Our Director of Place Management will make the decision about taking the scheme forward, based on the results of the public consultation.
This will be the decision on what to do in the longer term. We have several options:
- We can assess how well the access restriction and associated measures work for a longer period as an ongoing experiment, potentially up to a further 12 months
- We could modify how the scheme works, based on feedback and make it permanent at this stage
- We could make the scheme permanent, as it currently is
- We could remove the scheme entirely
The outcome and decision of the ETRO consultation will be published in Autumn 2022.
Possible further ETRO trial periodOn target
If the scheme goes ahead, we will implement the Kingsmead Square access restriction on an initial, 6 month trial basis.
Decision on making the access restriction permanentOn target
We will make a decision on whether to make the Kingsmead Square access restriction permanent within 18 months.
